Hélène Binet: The Walls of Suzhou Gardens

A Photographic Journey

Text by Juhani Pallasmaa.

Featured image is reproduced from ‘Hélène Binet: The Walls of Suzhou Gardens'.

A lyrical portrait of texture, light and the passage of time at the Suzhou gardens, from the author of The Intimacy of Making

In the classical gardens of Suzhou in China, surface transforms into space and walls become landscapes. In her journey through this UNESCO World Heritage Site, London-based Swiss French photographer Hélène Binet (born 1959) captures the traces of environmental influences on built structures. Her impressive series of photography shows how weather and time have turned blank walls into vivid depictions of nature. In Binet’s images, architecture becomes the frame for imaginary landscapes. By interweaving foreground and background, the artist tells stories that shift between the two dimensions of the plane and the three dimensions of space.

In an accompanying essay, architect and writer Juhani Pallasmaa captures the dreamlike quality of the photographs and emphasizes Binet’s skill of balancing precision and vagueness to create images that stimulate the viewer’s imagination.
